there are twice as many women as men in the union at global products altogether ,84 workers at the plant are union members . how many of them are women ?

F=2M
F+M=84
solve for F 
no idea?

Using Bobpursley's equations 
F + 2F = 84
3F = 84
F = ? 
f= 28
so f+2f=84
28+2*28=84
28+56=84
56 women 
Right.
